Houllier delighted Liverpool to be confirmed Premier League champions

Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier is delighted knowing they're set to be confirmed Premier League champions.

His only regret is the club's fans will not be there as games are behind closed doors due to Covid-19.

Houllier, 72, told the Mirror: “The DNA of Liverpool is silverware. To get the title it is a special reward for everyone.

“It has been a long wait of 30 years. It is a title which is a reward to the fans for their loyalty and what they have gone through.

“It rewards all the Liverpool supporters all around the world. It is a title which rewards the players and their staff.

“Not only will they win it, but they will do it in style with a 25-point lead at the moment which has never been seen before.

“In my time we were lucky to have six trophies.

“But Jurgen Klopp won the Champions League last season then the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and now this. It is just a shame to me Liverpool fans won't be able to experience it at Anfield.

“The fans I hope will be disciplined enough to wait until better times to celebrate the title. I hope to be there then too, but we don't know yet when they are going to be crowned."
